About the studio show
This studio aims to provide the opportunity for students to combine design skills with advanced furniture making techniques. Students strive to become accomplished in both and to make beautiful and intriguing bespoke pieces. Some pieces are commissioned and have been designed with the client and are actually in use now. Each piece is destined for a particular place or person.
After graduation some students aim to run their own business, or to be skilled enough to join an existing business. Some FDA graduates will progress to a 3rd year to show again next year and leave the university with a BA Hons degree.
Students in this Studio work alongside those in Surfing the Crash Studio and have close links with students in the FDA Restoration Grammar of Ornament Studio. The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers work offer students the opportunity to take part in the annual industrial study tour and awarding a prize each year to the student who demonstrates the most accomplishment as a designer maker.
